Skype launches free app for iPad

Skype unveiled a free Internet-phone and video-chat app for iPad Tuesday, which allows users to call both landlines and mobile phones through either a 3G or a Wi-Fi connection, or to chat with other iPad and desktop users, The Christian Science Monitor reported.

The new version is optimised for iPad’s larger screen. It features instant messaging, a display for contacts and SMS texting, and also allows iPad2 users to talk face-to-face with the tablet’s front camera or switch to the rear camera, Media Post reported.

According to a Skype spokesperson, users of the iPad app, mostly those non-paying ones, may see ads in the future. The company assures “advertising will be integrated into our mobile software in a manner that is respectful of the user experience.”
